She said: “Chorley Group has only recently become an MG dealership so the visit was the ideal opportunity to see the quality of the product, build relationships with the manufacturers and take a look at the designs for the next generation of cars that will roll off the production line.”

As well as experiencing the MG production line, Pauline had the chance to see some of the cars of the future at the Guangzhou motor show and to take a look behind the scenes at some of the concept cars being created at MG’s research and development centre.

“We were given a full tour of the research and development facility, which gave us a fantastic insight into the direction MG is heading in, added Pauline.
